Ministry of Justice to review Jon Venables supervision

The Ministry of Justice is to review how Jon Venables was supervised after his release from custody in 2001, eight years after he murdered James Bulger.

On Friday, Venables was jailed for two years for downloading and distributing indecent images of children.

The arrangements for the supervision of Venables, now 27, by probation, police and other agencies will be examined.

Andy Tighe reports.
